Branding Healthcare in the Age of Consumerism

Healthcare branding has long been challenging. It’s hard to posit distinctive differentiators in an abundance of markets: how many ways can you evoke quality, innovation, or compassion? Now, branding is complicated by a seismic shift in consumer perspective.

The Fragility of Agility

Something happens when an agency’s staff grows past an even dozen.  Up to that size, everyone is able to know everything, all the time.  One leader/proprietor can manage by fiat. The agency is “agile” by default.  But also limited in its ability to handle large or complex accounts.

1 Million Views & Counting

 “A picture is worth a thousand words,” or so the saying goes. So, exactly how many words can we attribute to a video 1 minute in length? I’m sure there’s someone willing to do the math out there, but I think we can safely guess that it’s somewhere in the millions. And when you consider growing populations and dwindling attention spans, that’s a medium with a pretty powerful impact.
